Financo CEO forum
Jan. 14, 2013


Financo knows how to fill a room with power players. The fashion industry’s top brass gathered at The Harmonie Club in New York last week for a panel featuring Juicy Couture CEO Paul Blum; Coach Inc. Chairman and CEO Lew Frankfort; Union Square Hospitality Group founder and CEO Danny Meyer; and VF Corp. Chairman, President and CEO Eric Wiseman. The discussion centered around brick-and-mortar stores as the hot opportunity to connect with consumers. But it wasn’t until Financo Chairman Gilbert Harrison called on J.Crew frontman Mickey Drexler that the conversation got a little heated.
